Rated 1 out of 5 by fishyfink Not for tall girls
I so wanted this suit to work! While I managed to get the straps over my shoulders, I couldn't stand up straight. If you are tall (I'm almost 6 ft) or have a long torso, def pass on this one. Even if the cups covered my 'girls' I think they would have fallen out...not much support.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LBIChick Fell right out of it!
I was so excited when I saw this suit online. The navy blue color and shape sold me! I tried it on and the low cut top was ridiculous! Why have shape wear swim suits that provide absolutely no coverage on top? My 'girls' literally fell right out of it. I am a mother and I need a swim suit that holds me in. I love love love Spanx bras. Why not design suits with the same bra coverage I'm used to? Even a shelf bra would be better than this low cut version. I'm a mom of two little kid's that needs to play with my kid's on the beach; not look sexy!

Recently purchased this swimsuit for a trip to the Bahamas. I love how the sides can be cinched lower or higher. This detail gives greater options if you want to cover more or less of your sides, tummy & bottom. Padded bra gives me an excellent boost. I am a small B cup & like what the extra adds to my shape. I feel completely comfortable in this suit & would recommend it highly.

Love!!!!! I have never in my 33 years liked the way I look in a swimsuit. I have always tried to avoid swimming in public places and uncomfortable in a suit. This swimsuit is comfortable and I look good. No tightness where I can't breath, my stomach is flat my chest is wow! I want a body suit that fits this well.
Simply put the best swimsuit ever!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mimiche Way smaller than size chart
Love this suit and I was soooo excited to order and receive, but was really disappointed when I tried it on. I wear a juniors size 5, so I figured a small would do. The small is comparable to a size 0, I could barley squeeze it over my hips, so you can imagine how stuffed I looked and felt! Will be returning for a medium or maybe even a large. After 2 kids and the final weight coming off (7 years in the process) I was finally happy to find a swim dress with tummy controll for under $100. Will update on next size fit... If they still have more available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mtemple76 Hoping for a little more shape-providing coverage
This would work wonderful but only for certain body types. I like the idea of the gathers because they can hide bumps and bulges, but the "shape-providing" fabric part is only in the bikini bottom, not in the skirt. For a person like me with chunky hips and thighs, my thighs came out looking like tree trunks under the skirt. I returned it.

These days I wear size 10 pants and size 12 for tops, so I ordered a L. It did not work for me, and I am not sure it will work for many. The cup size is small and is made even smaller by the "push-up" part which, I am not kidding, takes almost half of the cup, leaving my breasts no choice but to fall out :(
The hidden base bodice part is made out of transparent mesh, the main quality of which is being slippery, and the top part of the "dress" rides up on it. It would not even stay down as I put the swimsuit on. I did not even have to move for it to just slide up, it just does not stay down.
Also, even when I tried to hold the "skirt" down, the ruiching was odd and made me look broader than I look in my old swimsuit.
I admit my body proportions are far from perfect - I do have a thicker than I would like middle section. I thought that would be where spanx will help me. But, quite clearly, not with this suit. Maybe it would look good on perfectly skinny people with smaller breast size, but why would they need spanx then?
So I am glad I got a reminder to review the product, cause it reminds me to go mail the return (and pay the shipment costs).
All in all - nice navy color, but small overly stuffed pushup cups, the skirt part rides up, ruiching is not flattering.
